MEDIROM Healthcare Technologies Inc., the holistic healthcare company (Headquartered in Minato-ku, Tokyo, CEO: Kouji Eguchi, NASDAQ CM: MRM)( “the Company”),taps into the US market with “MOTHER Bracelet” , the First Activity Tracker in the World* that does not require recharging.
Prior to officially entering into the US market, the company is implementing test marketing through one of the major crowdfunding platforms in the United States“Indiegogo”.
Activity Trackers are typically used to check what lifestyle habits you haveand to help you monitor health data 24/7 in order to achieve your health goals.
However, because most devices require charging, it prevents you from tracking your health data 24/7. You might even forget to put it on after charging and leave it behind.
This is one of the major problems seen in activity trackers. MOTHER Bracelet is a solution to this as it is self-charging
By utilizing hybrid charging from temperature difference and solar energy, it will charge continuously on its own. This major feature of the MOTHER Bracelet enables users to track health data for 24 hours, 365 days. You will notr lose data because you do not need to take it off for charning.
In 2021, MOTHER Bracelet successfully raised JPY 56 million on the Japanese crowdfunding site, MAKUAKE, ending in the 1st place in the healthcare gadgets category. The Company is set to open its pre-launching site in May 2023, and start the crowdfunding campaign in June 2023.
